of the efforts to stop chuck hague frl becoming secretary of defense are losing steam. comments by john mccain suggest he's on a glide path to confirmation and president obama hits the road taking his gun control message to the heartland. the question is will that create enough meaningful pressure for reform? that's straight ahead. we begin with new revelations involving u.s. drone strikes program and the obama administration's legal justification behind the use of such efforts against al qaeda suspects. a new 16-page memo copy of which was obtained by nbc news offers fresh insights into this controversial practice including the killing of american citizens overseas if they're believed to be senior operational leaders of al qaeda or an associated force. even if there's no intelligence indicating they're engaged in an active plot to attack the united states. >>> such a strike, of course, took place in yemen in september 2011 killing two operatives. both of them were american citizens who hadn't been indicted by the u.s. government or charged with any crimes. in the past, attorney general eric h

, visit lyrica.com. >>> on a radar, senator john mccain says he will not block an up or down vote on chuck hagel. and governor chris christie gives a little sweet talk monday night. >>> first, senator bob menendez forcefully denied allegations he had any contact with prostitutes during trips to the dominican republic with a wealthy donor. >> the smears -- the smears that right wing blogs have been pushing since the election and that is totally unsubstantiated. it's amazing to me that anonymous, nameless, faceless individuals on a website can drive that type of story into the mainstream. the bottom line is all of those smears are absolutely false and, you know, that's the bottom line. >> republican senator john mccain, a sharp critic of chuck hagel's nomination as defense secretary, said he will not support a filibuster of his former colleague saying he doesn't believe the procedural move is appropriate. mccain joins four other senate republicans who have voiced opposition to a filibuster including susan collins, roy blunt, lamar alexander and richard burr. and that doesn't include thad coc

the establishment. the karl roves, the john mccains say oh, surely now we'll get behind the gang of 8 and do the immigration reform. they can't get the house contingent to support even that, which is like a knife at the heart of the republican party demographically. so it shows this will be a long battle within the gop that will rage on for quite a while. not least because the biggest donors are not necessarily in tune with the base. some are, like the coke brothers, but others on wall street are not with the base like on immigration, abortion, gay rights. >> taxes only. >> taxes only. >> it will be really interesting to see on guns, thinking about president obama out in minnesota today with all the cops standing behind him. on background checks in particular, 92 public support for universal background checks. if republicans can't figure out a way to support something that has 92% to support the republicans and democrat also on that, i think, i don't know what happens next on them. it will be fascinating. >> it will be fun to watch from our point of view. >> okay, you can turn your tv back o

, hagel will probably be confirmed. yesterday, senator john mccain said he will not support a filibuster of his former senate colleague and democrats appear to have at least 57 votes to confirm hagel, including two republicans. first kid you ready? [ female announcer ] second kid by their second kid, every mom is an expert and more likely to choose luvs. after thousands of diaper changes, they know what works. luvs lock away wetness better than huggies for a fraction of the cost live, learn, & get luvs. for a fraction of the cost when you lost the thing you can't believe you lost.. when what you just bought, just broke. or when you have a little trouble a long way from home... as an american express cardmember you can expect some help. but what you might not expec is you can get all this with a prepaid card. spends like cash. feels like membership. >>> the politics now, where hillary clinton launched a new website, hillaryclintonoffice.com. pretty bare bones. just a picture and a place to click if you want to contact her, but it has only contacted the rampant 2016 speculation. add tagg r

milbank. dana, good to have you here. and don't we have senator john mccain, and we know how this went down, several other republicans were very tough through that confirmation hearing, but they said yesterday they would not support a filibuster of hagel's confirmation, as threatened by senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. so would it be historic, or do you think that it's really possible? >> to actually proceed with a filibuster? >> to proceed with a filibuster, yeah? >> it's a theoretical possibility. it would be such an extraordinary escalation of the wars here in washington, which are already completely out of control. so, yes, they could do it. but just the very notion of them filibustering, one of their former republican colleagues, and not because they found him unfit to serve for some personal reason or related to his capacity to serve, but because they don't like his policies. and guess what, those policies happen to be the policies of the president who just won re-election. it would be an awful precedent to start. i would be awfully surprised if they really wanted to go
